Now that BlackBerry OS 10.2.1 has landed we have been going over the new features and changes that makes your day-to-day usage easier and more productive. One of the items that has been around since the last iteration but deserves a closer look is the attachment view capability in the Hub. Not only can you view all of the files sent to you but filter and sort by name, date, name, sender, and type. Users may also utilize the search option to find exactly what they are looking for.
One of the great things about this is that for power users who juggle multiple email accounts and receive plenty of attachments - whether it be an important document for work, a photograph sent by a family member, or even a travel itinerary - attachment view lets you view them directly without searching for and opening up the original email.
Once you press the attachments icon, there are additional options available at the bottom. Users may tap on the Search icon to locate a specific one by file name only. They may also tap on the Grid or List icon to toggle between the two views which displays file names and the name of the individual who sent the message.
After you go through the list of items and locate the file you want, simply tap on an attachment to download, preview, or share. For items that are downloaded a small green checkmark appears in the upper right of the attachment icon.
After you select this feature in the Hub, users are able to sort by date, sender, name, type, and the order (ascending or descending).
This certainly a convenient feature for managing your inbox and accessing attachments quicker.
